Cozy, well-equppied, perfect location!

We stayed here for 8 days at Christmas and it was perfect. The owners have thought of every detail to guarantee maximum comfort.

Our grandchildren who live nearby spent two nights and they loved making snow angels in the backyard!

Great house and location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 weeks with our 3 month old baby, and our dog. It's a short walk to Pearl St, an easy run to great trails or the Boulder Creek Path and an easy ride to get to the paths, Betasso Loop or Flagstaff. The yard was perfect for our dog, and the neighbors were extremely friendly, offering to have our dog play with theirs. We highly recommend it.

The perfect vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

The house is exactly as it shows in the photographs; nicely decorated, every convenience you might need, comfortable and inviting. It's location makes it possible to walk to great eateries and convenience stores or drive a few short blocks and be in the middle of the mall on Pearl Street. Should you have an issue or concern, the owners are quick to remedy it. I would happily book this home for future stays in Boulder.

Everything we wanted and more

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Sara's home. It was well equipped and comfortable. The home was cleared of owners personal belongings- so lots of space to put things away in closets, fridge, etc. The back yard was nice and had cozy table and chairs to hang out and enjoy my morning coffee. The location close to Whole Foods Ideal market was a bonus, and other restaurants and shops. Easy walk to Pearl Street too. We would love to come back.

About Sara

I purchased the home based on its great location! It is my primary residence but I travel frequently for my work as an executive coach and leadership consultant. Our work takes us around the globe, but we always return to this sweet home and Boulder!

Our house is walking distance to what we love: hiking, cycling, yoga classes, live music, excellent restaurants, coffee shops, events at CU & great people watching on Pearl Street Mall!

Our grandchildren also love the house, with its large yard and easy access to Pearl Street Mall, play grounds, ice cream shops, North Boulder Pool, hiking and biking.

Sara purchased this house in 1998

Why Sara chose Whittier

Boulder is amazing! If you love the great outdoors, there is so much going on here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came to Boulder for the graduation of our son. It snowed during the evening, but we woke up to blue skys. This is a perfect setup for an alternative to staying in a hotel We would much rather do this than a cramped hotel room.

We wish we had found this four years ago. I can't think of anything that your home lacks, Thank you , thank you, thank you.
